    St Peter's Square, Manchester, M2 5PD

Join us at Manchester Central Library in conversation with award-winning playwright and artist Linda Brogan.

Linda will be discussing how her pursuit of memories led to the excavation of the Reno Club, renowned in the 1970s for being the best soul and funk club in Manchester and a space for young mixed-race Mancunians who often weren’t welcome elsewhere; an exhibition at The Whitworth; and now a book, 12 Words, published by Bluemoose Books. Bluemoose will be selling copies of 12 Words on the night.

Authors Carmen, Tia and Catherine were part of the 2016 Reno excavation that took place 30 years after the club was demolished and have written 12 Words alongside Linda, in the process unlocking truths, secrets and confessions.

Please note that these tickets are available on a Pay What You Can basis, either £2/6/10 ticket options are available.
